BROOKLYN - As temperatures soar into the triple digits, many Brooklyn residents tried to stay cool any way they could.

Some public pools, including the Douglas Degraw pool in Brooklyn, were on an extended schedule to accommodate residents. Still, the Degraw pool was quickly filled to capacity Saturday, and would-be swimmers lined up for more than an hour to get in the water.

There were also cooling centers at local libraries and senior centers where people could go to relax in air conditioning.News 12 Weather CenterFind a cooling center near you
